Punched out garlands

This is my project for Hobbyworld this week. For a super easy project this day before Christmas all you need is a punch, some nice paper and a sewing machine. Also, if you feel ambitious, add glitter. Easy, right? IMG_7170liten

I punched out snowflakes from Vellum but you can use any paper and punch. Circles from double sided pattern papers are cute to use. For my garland I added three punched out shapes for each snowflake, bunched it toghether and sewed across the middle, then pull out some thread without cutting it and sew through the next shape. After I was done adding shapes I folded the snowflakes out to make it dimensional.


I also used a glue pen and added glitter, be warned though, this takes some patience using vellum since it’s flimsy and the snowflakes had a lot of points to add glitter to. It took forever and the scrap room still glitters. Very Christmas-like.

Have a wonderful Christmas and make sure to take some time to create something.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
